Kyle Bradford Jones, MD, FAAFP is an Associate (Clinical) Professor in Family and Preventive Medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He graduated from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2009, and completed his residency in Family Medicine at the University of Utah in 2012. Since then, he has worked at the Neurobehavior HOME Program, a clinical program for individuals with a developmental disability, where he leads the Primary Care and Utilization Management Teams. He is author of the best-selling and award-winning book Fallible: A Memoir of a Young Physician’s Struggle with Mental Illness.
